This is the full 2-17-2014 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
On today’s episode of Labor Express Radio we have a sort of 10th anniversary program. In 2004 when I took over Labor Express from the program’s founder and long time host Wayne Heimbach, I was the co-chair of the Global Justice Committee of Jobs with Justice. In those days we were working on the Coca-Cola boycott motivated by the assassination of several trade unionist at Coca-Cola facilities in Colombia. One of the people who played a leading role in that effort was Dan Kovalik, Senior Associate General Counsel of the United Steelworkers Union. So when I heard Dan was going to be in town last Thursday to talk about the current situation in Colombia, I thought what a perfect way to mark my 10 years on Labor Express.
So today’s program will feature the talk given by Dan Kovalik in Chicago on Thursday at Workers United Hall. In the talk, Dan talks about the current peace process underway in Colombia.
